A brain injury – also called traumatic brain injury, or TBI, in many contexts – is one of the most severe injuries a person can suffer. In most cases, immediate and significant consequences are suffered when a TBI occurs. The survivors of a brain injury will need extensive medical assistance, both upfront and far into the future. The cost of those treatments should not come from the pocket of the survivor if they were not the one responsible for their brain injury.

Violent Accidents That Can Cause a TBI
The brain is a highly sensitive organ, making it vulnerable to severe harm. Most any violent accident can result in a traumatic brain injury if things go wrong for the victim. Even accidents that appear minor could cause a brain injury under certain circumstances.
Examples of accidents and incidents that are known to have a high risk of TBI injury:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Explosions, such as in terrorist attacks
- Surgical mistakes
It is important to realize that not all brain injuries immediately manifest with severe symptoms. Some brain injuries can be life-threatening but start with only mild symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea, insomnia, memory problems, mood swings, and chronic headaches. If you are in a serious accident and experience unexplained symptoms, please see your medical provider urgently for a checkup and diagnosis of your injuries.
Damages Cited in Most Brain Injury Claims
Due to the severity of brain injuries, the damages caused can be truly extensive. Brain injuries are also incredibly unlikely to heal due to the brain’s slow regenerative rate, meaning nearly all TBIs are permanent and cause lifelong consequences. As such, the damages that you should be provided from any liable parties will need to be great.
Damages you may be able to collect in your TBI claim are:
- Emergency medical attention
- Rehabilitative therapy
- Lost wages
- Lessened enjoyment of life
- Shortened life expectancy
- Adjustments to living situation
- Special care needs
